Several Jews are being led by soldiers to a gas chamber. One of the Jews cries out, “Let’s charge them and make a run for it.” Another Jew shouts in response, “Stop! Do you want to make things worse?”
As Palestinian Terrorism ramps up from Gaza and the West Bank and the UN prepares to convene in September to entertain some chilling proposals, the debate among American and Israeli Jews regarding the future of Israel has taken on a character similar to the gas chamber vignette.
In little more than six decades since the Holocaust, for too many Jews, “Never again!” seems to have become “Stop! Do you want to make things worse?”
And how is it that those who oppose Israel are somehow able, in common cause, to minimize terrorism, wink at anti-semitism and accept as legitimate the current short-list of thugs, hatemongers and power brokers in the Middle East and yet an astounding number of Jews in America, Europe and Israel faced with those threats can’t seem to agree on anything?
